A BTS photo from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reveals an advertisement for Wong and Abomination’s fight at the Golden Daggers Club.
A behind-the-scenes photo from the production of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reveals an advertisement for Wong and Abomination’s fight at the club in Macau. Shang-Chi has finally implemented Marvel’s Master of Kung Fu into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The MCU’s 25th film follows Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) as he’s forced to confront his past as the heir apparent of Wenwu (Tony Leung), the leader of the criminal organization, the Ten Rings. But first, Shang-Chi and his best friend, Katy (Awkwafina), meet up with his estranged sister, Xialing (Zhang).
Shang-Chi introduces an underground MCU fighting tournament via the Golden Daggers Club in Macau, a city on the southern coast of China. Shang-Chi and Katy go there thinking Xialing, who runs the club, sent the former a message (which was actually sent by Wenwu). The venue streams its fights on the dark web and allows spectators to bet on who they believe will win. One of the film’s most anticipated cameos was that of the Sorcerer Supreme’s right-hand man, Wong (Benedict Wong), and Abomination (Tim Roth), who can be seen fighting in the cage before Shang-Chi and Xialing have their reunion.
Production designer Sue Chan recently posted a photo to her Instagram showing street art outside Xialing’s Golden Daggers Club. The behind-the-scenes photo shows Wong standing beneath an advertisement promoting the fight between him and Abomination. Check it out below:
Following COVID-19 delays, Shang-Chi has been breaking box office records. The film is being praised for its culture, comedy, heart, and action sequences, which pay homage to martial arts movies of old and set a new precedent for hand-to-hand combat in the MCU. The above photo is yet another great example of Marvel Studios’ affinity for detail. Despite being a standalone origin story, Shang-Chi does connect to the larger MCU in many ways, furthering the momentum of Phase 4. In this regard, Wong and Abomination’s appearances are no exception.
It’s unclear what Abomination has been up to since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk or why Wong is his chaperone in Shang-Chi. Presumably, Abomination is an inmate at General Ross’s Raft Prison. Regardless, audiences are sure to find out when Abomination appears in Disney+’s She-Hulk. As for Wong, he’s slated to star in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home. His role in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings separates him from Doctor Strange, giving him autonomy as he (and some other Avengers) induct Shang-Chi as an Avenger.
